Your mother was an awesome godly woman. She made an impact on my life for Christ. I will never forget her. I talked to her this spring when I was home and she said she was ready to go but God must be keeping her here to pray for you. Surely she prayed for you until her last breath. You know she will be waiting for you in heaven where she is now. May all her prayers be answered!
